Strictly Parenting: Everything you need to know about raising school-aged kids


Formats & editions


Everything you need to know about parenting the school-aged kids of today, by Australia's leading parenting expert and bestselling author Michael Carr-Gregg.

'If you want to land your kids in therapy, then by all means, give them everything under the sun.'
In his work as a family psychologist, Michael Carr-Gregg has noticed a worrying trend in our modern parenting styles, which sees kids running riot and parents running for cover. In our desire to give our children the best, we may have given them way too much, and overlooked the importance of setting boundaries. He believes it's a recipe for disaster.

In Strictly Parenting, Michael asks parents to take a good hard look at the way they are parenting – to toughen up and stop trying to be their kids' best friends. Instead he offers practical, evidence-based solutions on how to take back the reins and start making the most of the precious family years.

With a user-friendly A-Z guide covering all the tricky issues that parents encounter over the years – everything from birthday parties and bedtimes to sex and drugs – this is an invaluable and very timely resource for parents of all school-aged kids.
